MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Former Kansas State administrator Bob Krause has died. He was 70.

The university said a memorial service for Krause will be Monday at All Faiths Chapel on Kansas State campus.

The Yorgensen-Meloan-Londeen funeral home in Manhattan said in an obituary that Krause died of cancer Wednesday at a hospice home in Manhattan.

Krause was vice president for institutional advancement from 1968 to 2009, helping the university increase enrollment and fundraising.

He was acting athletics director from 2008 until he resigned in 2009 during a controversy over a secret contract with then-football coach Ron Prince. Kansas State sued to invalidate the agreement and paid Prince a $1.65 million settlement.

Krause then became director of development at Kansas State’s Olathe campus.

He is survived by his wife, three daughters and four grandchildren
